Falmouth Tombstone Thought to Be Stolen Was Actually Out for Repairs

A centuries-old tombstone thought to have been stolen from a cemetery in Falmouth, Massachusetts over the weekend was actually just out for repairs.

The family of the deceased told police Monday that they had the stone removed from the Old Burying Ground on Sunday for repairs and plan to have it returned when those repairs are complete.

Police had been notified when a witness observed a man loading the headstone into the back of a truck and became concerned.
